Pros: Sharp, IS is very good, close focus 24cm, quiet USM focus

Cons: Bright points of light show slight coma at image corners, a bit expensive.

Opinion: I use this lens on a 600D crop frame camera so it is 56mm to me. This lens takes very sharp images even at f2. The 8 point sun stars it produces look great. The IS has allowed me to take sharp images hand held down to 0.8sec. Although it is a lot quieter to focus than the smaller 35mm f2 the USM motor still can be heard when focusing. This is a great street photography lens.

Pros: Compartment, lightweight, 35mm, is

Cons: Nothing to declare.

Opinion: I do not want to write poems or eleggi of opinions dictated by Dxo mark, resistance to infringements, resistance to flare etc etc .... I only give my opinion on the use of the optics in question. For my way of photographing I consider the 35 mm a better focal length than a 50mm. As a former owner of the various 35mm canon f 1.4 series one and series two I can only say that the difference in aperture f/2 vs f/1.4 is noticeable, especially in the 3D "magic" of the f/1.4, and who does not admit it is only because he has never tried an f/1.4 !!! That said, I loved and love the wonderful blurred f/1.4 which unfortunately involves bulk and weight unlike this f/2 light, compact (if used without hood) and the typical colors of canon. The stabilizer I find very effective and useful, although mounted on a classic 35mm gives you the opportunity to use fast shutter speeds and use low iso. I use it on 6dmk2, 80d, Eos R and Eos R6 and on all bodies it works which is a wonder. Would recommend? Yes, without a shadow of a doubt for those who do not want to spend too much money on an f/1.4 also used and if they want to travel light. The alternative is sigma Art,.... Tried years ago and resold after only 10 days.... to you the conclusion.

Pros: Extraordinary sharpness (on the other hand on DxO Mark is classified as one of the most "resolving" lenses), general optical rendering including bokeh, Beautiful color rendering, diffraction resistance, usable PdC references, good flare resistance even without hood, the aperture of f / 2 is the ideal compromise, sufficient to "detach" the subject and / or work in low ambient light, useless to look brighter.

Cons: The good quality plastic construction is very accurate and even if it is not worth a magnesium alloy construction it has the advantage of lightness. Frankly on a lens of this type the IS is superfluous and levitates the price and the bulk compared to the previous version, I would have preferred more compactness, the hood and bag provided instead of the stabilizer. The MaF ring is not wide enough and its stroke a little short (AF obblige) to be really comfortable but it is precise enough to work in manual and the references of PdC are present and very usable to manage the PdC and the hyperfocal. It is not really a defect but this lens is so "sharp" that you have to be careful in post-production to dose the sharp to avoid the appearance of artifacts and give a more natural look to the details, in fact often even the Sharp values by default of the various SW are excessive.

Opinion: I do not know what sense it makes to judge a lens in absolute and so to be more "objective" I compared it to the Leica Summicron 35mm f/2 R (a lens of the 70s) which has been my reference for at least 30 years. the Canon behaves very well, the contrast is equally high and maintains quite well even in blurred areas (1) and the correctness and separation of colors (2) even if not at the level of the Leica are of excellent workmanship. Due to the slightly lower contrast of the blurred areas the bokeh of the Canon is more "sweet" and less "sculptural" than the Leica (3) but remains of an excellent level, one could compare to that of a Zeiss for example. The vignetting and distortion of the Canon are much more pronounced than the Leica but now digitally they are no longer a problem. On the other hand, the sharpness of the Canon is superior to that of the Leica, it is truly extraordinary at all apertures (from f / 2 to the most closed apertures such as f / 16 and 22 which are very usable). At the level of flare and parasitic reflexes the Canon behaves well (I think they avoided the expense of the hood) but the incredible thing is that the 40-year-old Summicron is even better (incredible but what the hell of anti-reflective treatment used Leica ?). In short, after all, the Canon 35mm f/2 IS is really an excellent lens that has a beam of quality such as to make it attractive, in my opinion it is a lens not to be missed among the fixed focal lengths of the Canon catalog. (1) To some the bokeh of the Leica may seem "nervous" or "hard" but it is precisely this that makes its "magic", the beauty of its rendering and the quality of the 3D effect. It is a blurry type that of the Leica that I would define as a nice bokeh and not, as you can read here and there in the forum, a blurred "kneaded", uniform and without contrast that brutally detaches is uniformly with the subject in focus as if behind it there was pulled a tent and that unfortunately is so "fashionable" currently. (2) Qualities where Leica excel and which make the slightest chromatic nuances from the softest "pastel" colors to the most saturated colors with a unique accent of truth. (3) the subjects have a volume, they seem to be carved with summicron.

Pros: lightweight, super sharp, excellent stabilization, good blurry, autofocus very fast and precise

Cons: nothing relevant

Opinion: "Scientific" objective, made modern therefore perfect (very sharp already at full opening, from corner to corner). I don't have much to add compared to the list of pros, to the amount you buy it used is absolutely worth it. Until a couple of years ago, I was hoping canon would also make the 50 1.4 on the line of this lens (and 24 and 28), which is quite compact, lightweight, very efficient and stabilized. The 35mm focal lends itself well to many genres and if you like this lens it is a must, especially to photograph with little light (f2 and 1/3 of a second freehand, better than the fixed 1.2). The blurry is great, but not as magical as the 35 L series 1. Highly recommended

Pros: Nitiezza already at TA, Stabilizer (but not from 4 stops), AF, size, construction.

Cons: Stabilizer not very effective and lack of tropicalization I do not feel the need. The paraluce buys it with a few euros.

Opinion: Purchased to complete the trio of fixed lenses (35mm, 50mm and 100mm macro), to be combined with the zooms in my possession, to date it is the lightest and most compact lens in my possession after the Canon EF 40mm stm pancake. These factors, together with the good versatility of the focal, the reliable AF in every situation and the excellent sharpness already starting from TA, which further improves to excellent levels at f/4-5.6, make it the ideal lens to always keep attached to the machine body for uses ranging from the street to the portrait shots set etc., etc. The stabilizer, more likely from -2 than from -4 stop, is a surplus that helps in shooting with difficult lighting or at night, but that guarantees stabilized shots really usable with times of 1/8s or better 1/15s. I honestly do not like to take photos in the rain and even used in dusty environments showed no problem, so I do not feel the need for the lack of tropicalization. As far as I'm concerned it's a highly recommended purchase.
